It is indicated by a study targeting over 90 years of age that "drinking alcohol" is more relevant to health than "exercise"

Among the studies for over 90 years of age, the world's largest research project "The 90+"In people over the age of 90 years, it was shown that" drinking "is related to a decrease in the mortality rate at an earlier stage than" a lot of exercise ".

No, Drinking Alcohol Will not Make You Live Past 90

The research project "The 90+" conducted by the University of California was a re-examination for subjects in the study "Leisure World Cohort Study (LWCS)" started in 1981. LWCS inquired about 14,000 subjects about health, hobbies, drinking, etc. The 90+ is a follow-up survey of over 1,600 people over the age of 90 of the subjects of LWCS, " I tried to clarify what makes a person longevity.

As a result, it turned out that subjects who drink alcohol 1 to 2 cups per day had a mortality rate of 18% lower than those who did not drink alcohol. On the other hand, the mortality rate of persons who exercise 15 to 45 minutes a day is 11% lower than those who do not exercise, although it is slightly affected by alcohol consumption, it can be said that the influence is great. Claudia Kawas, a professor of neurology and neuroscience who participated in the study said about the above result "I can not explain the reason, but I believe that moderate drinking will promote longevity" I said.

In addition, those who devote two hours to the hobby each day have a mortality rate of 21% lower than those who do not, and the death rate is 10% less than those who drink 2 cups of coffee a day without drinking That's right.

However, according to the National Alcohol Poisoning Research Institute, more than 88,000 people died of alcohol-related diseases every year in the United States, and alcohol is the third "preventable" after "malnutrition" and "tobacco" Cause of death ". There are 24,000 people who are no longer liver diseases such as liver cirrhosis and liver cancer, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology announces that alcohol intake raises the risk of cancer. Furthermore, in the study of 2014, it was also shown that the probability of death within 20 years is doubled as compared with those of the same age who drink alcohol in the 50s and 60s who drink too much once a week . There are also many studies showing that alcohol intake shortens, rather than prolongs the lifespan.

Of course, research results of content that moderate drinking reduces the risk of heart disease has also been announced. Just as for this survey, Mr. Kawas says, "Please remember that we started researching for people aged 90." "Those who are overdrinking drinking at a young age, 90 There is a possibility that I can not be old. "

A similar result to Mr. Kawas' remarks is also shown in the meta-analysis of 2016. In this study, 87 studies investigating the relationship between alcohol consumption and longevity were analyzed, "moderate drinking" is not "health benefit" but "only indicator of health or not" I was told that.

In other words, "people who did not drink" had made choices not to drink because they had excessive drinking at a young age or because of health problems, contrary to "moderate drinking" People who have health condition are good that "moderate drinking" is possible. Drinking does not bring about health, but the health condition affects whether drinking is possible or not, and it is possible that the causal relationship will be reversed.

It is difficult to clarify the causal relationship of such research, and further research is necessary to conclude that "moderate drinking will promote health". At the moment, it can be said that it is "to do moderately when drinking, and to drink for enjoyment, not for longevity".
